Daring Lake

2014 has been a fantastic year for all things outdoors.  I’m very grateful for all of the learning opportunities that have come my way. Here is to a great 2015!

Winter Birding

I first began birding in the summer of 2013 during my stay on the tundra of the Northwest Territories. I instantly fell in love with the hobby, but I did find it rather overwhelming at times when numerous breeding birds were out calling all at once. I felt that my real breakthroughs in birding came in the winter of 2013/2014. With fewer birds around I was really able to focus on my ID skills, and I became a much more confident birder. I encourage all newcomers to this past-time to not overlook the winter as a key season for birding.  Who knows what you may find!
